Q: I love holiday baking but when some of my favorite recipes call for tempering and chocolate coatings, I put them off because of the hassle and mess. I don't have a microwave so I do everything stovetop. Melting, tempering and dipping in chocolate seems so time-consuming and expensive... ....especially since I use great chocolate. I would love a mini version of a chocolatiers tempering station, or I'll settle for some clever advice! Sent by Lindsey Editor: Readers, any advice or tips for Lindsey? Have you found shortcuts or good products to help you do chocolate coatings faster and easier?
